A 9th round bantam draft pick in 2001, the Selkirk Manitoba product was in the same draft class as Tyler Spurgeon (1st rd), Blake Comeau (2nd rd), and Mike Card (4th rd). What a draft!!
Howarth played three seasons with the Rockets before playing his 20 year-old year with the Selkirk Steelers where he scored 49 goals in 2006-07.
No longer playing the game, Howarth is living in Selkirk, married to his high school girlfriend Jodi. Howarth is a locomotive engineer at CN Rail.
